Comboyne & Neighbouring Communities Community Plan

In late 2018, members of the Comboyne and neighbouring communities came together in a series of Community Think Tank workshops to:

  • Tell us what they like about their community;
  • Draft a vision for the community;
  • Identify key themes for their community and
  • Identify actions that they would like to see delivered in the next 3-5 years.

A Community-Council Action Team (C-CAT) for the local community has been established who will work together to draft a Community Plan for the area. This Plan will then go out to the community for further input and feedback before being endorsed by Council.

There is still time to be a part of this part of this Action Team. If you would like to shape the future direction of your community, find out more and complete a nomination form.

 

Vision for Comboyne & Neighbouring Communities
